Needed WinForm component in C# to run in IE. Should be started from local html page and read some data files.
I made some Java applet that would like to have in .Net/C# technology too. I need component startup and installation problems solved because .Net significantly differs from Java (at least the way I need it).
Important features of my Java applet are:
* Run from a local file system (actually CD containing presentation) ??" started by html page loaded in Internet Explorer or other Java enabled browser.
* Read some local files in or bellow applet installation directory. (By default security preferences Java applet can read files bellow its codebase ??" installation directory.)
* There is no need to digitaly sign such Java applet.
I would like to have equivalent features in C# component or, if not possible, as close as possible.
Requirements for Win Form component that should be delivered are:
* Able to run in Internet Explorer 5.x or later with installed .Net Runtime.
* Loaded by (embedded in) HTML page started from a local disk (no web site).
* If component can't be simply loaded from a local disk (as Java applets can do), it's acceptable that component is pre-installed (from local disk or network) on user's system. HTML page embedding the component should detect that component is not installed and report that to user.
* Must be able to read files from a local disk (known files that are part of localy delivered “presentation??).
* If possible, component should not be signed or to request additional permissions from user.
